Presented as a pitch for a musical about a printing press, Gutenberg! takes a wry look at the wonderful world of musicals and the victory of success over enthusiasm.
Doug and Bud believe the tale of Johann Gutenberg, who invented the printing press in 1450, could both entertain audiences and help solve illiteracy. This show is their pitch to producers; an attempt to get financial backing for their dream. Though their ideas may be crazy, their enthusiasm might just carry them through.
